“My barn having burned down, I can now see the moon.”


― Mizuta Masahide (17th century Japanese poet and samurai)

Tiffany Barnes:

Tiffany Barnes is familiar with overcoming hardships.  

After enduring physical, mental, and sexual abuse, Tiffany was emancipated at the age of 15.  At the time, she was only the 2nd case in the state of Utah for a child of that age to become legally emancipated. While working three jobs to support herself through high school, Tiffany became a Sterling Scholar, graduating top of her class, an athlete, and founder of S.H.A.R.E, an advocacy group for students; by students who had experienced abuse. 

What began as a small group of students supporting each other, S.H.A.R.E has since grown and evolved into a 503C national foundation that stands for Sharing Hope for the Abused through Resilience and Empowerment.

As a torch bearer for the 2002 Olympics, Tiffany has always been determined to shine light in dark places. Helping others to “light their flame within”. While most might have used their unfortunate past as a crutch, Tiffany has chosen instead to use it as a stepping-stone toward a better future. As a realtor and real estate investor, Tiffany prides herself in exceeding expectations for her clients. She also loves coaching people on how to set up successful Airbnb’s to build long term wealth. 

Tiffany is now following her passion of helping others to overcome through her work as the founder of S.H.A.R.E as well as a Keynote Speaker across the nation. 

Her first book “The Throw Away Girl”, an inspiring autobiography, is soon to be released. 

Tiffany has made it her mission to help others create real change, one person at a time. Her motto is “It’s the START that STOPS you.” Through her message, Tiffany helps others to begin their journey of resilience and empowerment from adverse circumstances one step at a time!
